Football is not a kind game.
It is not nice. It is not without violence. It is dirty, messy and loud.
For veterans at training camp, it can be even more difficult than what we see on the field. For vets, age and experience eventually become a hindrance rather than a positive tick on their resume. At some point, the cost to carry such players on a roster is just too high for general managers.
Every team is trying to get younger, faster and cheaper. To do that, sometimes you have to make the difficult, messy choice to cut a veteran player. For Indianapolis, this won't be as easy as it sounds: Most of the Colts are not veterans, as general manager Ryan Grigson has put together a very young roster.
Regardless, we've found five vets with potential to be off the team come September.
